Offering both outpatient and inpatient care, the 147-bed hospital administers specialty services tailored to children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Chicago Lakeshore Hospital offers an array of psychiatric services, including family, individual, and activity therapy programs. Chicago Lakeshore Hospital also offers a vast spectrum of treatments in mental and social health as well as educational and developmental issues. Chicago Lakeshore Hospital cares for individuals recovering from neglect, abuse, and other cases of personal trauma.
